Now we reached the 1st SP of SLED10 and normally i would say that the
product should have reached a state of development with an adequate
package sample.

All the years the Novell Community was amused about Microsoft's
unaptness by including games on their servers.

What does Novell do ? ... They build in all Gnome games and nearly all
multimedia players in the default package choice in their flagship of
server OS !!!

How stupid to make the same horseplay as the competitor did for years.

There are so much packages which are unnecessary wasting storage and
memory. Did Novell forget the main rules for building server OS's ?
The main convincing argument for NetWare was the modest handling of
resources. The way from NetWare to SLED looks like a backward development.

Your free hint for the day: the D in SLED stands for Desktop. SLES is
the server OS -- care to venture a guess as to what the second S stands
for?

Hopefully they finally included Sun Java 1.5 this time instead of having
to scrounge around for a dist. site to pull from (us noobs don't know
how to download and recompile and all that jazz).

SP1 still has 1.4. I've been able to successfully install 1.5 using a
prebuilt RPM. But for the details you'd have to post outside of
community.chat.

There's actually a prebuilt 1.6 RPM for SLED you can install. However,
when I tried it I found that the HP Proliant iLO didn't work correctly.
Seems to be fine with 1.5, so I'm just sticking with that.
